1. Simplify Life, Home & Work

I know this sounds like a massive thing to tackle, but it’s actually not!

If you want your life to be more organised so that you have time to do the things you want to do, then you need to make that happen. Nobody will do it for you.

The first step to getting organised is to cut back on the clutter, clear out any unnecessary items, it might be actually decluttering your home and physical stuff that you no longer need or use. Or it might mean decluttering your commitments, things you’ve taken on that you could really live without.

Make your life easier and ditch the things that make it hard work. You don’t need to feel bad about this either. It’s a good thing to look after yourself and prioritise you.

2. Tidy Up And Have A Place For EVERYTHING!

One way to make life easy is to properly tidy up your home. Make sure that all the items you keep, you want and need and find them a proper place.

This means you’ll know exactly where they are and where to put them back. Saves so much time in the long run.

3. Organisation Tips – Deal With Things Immediately

Anything you can answer, complete easily and quickly or put into your diary straight away, do it.

Stopping procrastination, stops the build up of piles of things that are just waiting to be dealt with that would literally only take a minute each.

4. Meal Plan – Organisation Tips

Spend a few minutes each week doing a family meal plan and stick to it. This means you can easily prep dinners, look at what’s needed and double up on meals to create easy freezer dinners. You can get more meal planning tips here.

It’s also a good idea to order food shopping online. Especially if you’re short on time or energy, it’s easier to stay organised and whizz through the shopping if you order online, plus you’re less likely to impulse buy.

You can also set up online shopping lists and add to your grocery order on your phone when you notice things are running low.

5. Housework Routine

I like a clean and organised house, it makes me feel happy. Be realistic about what housework needs doing, how clean you want your home to be and how much time you have. Also look at sharing and delegating housework jobs too.

We use this housework routine which can be easily adapted to suit your needs and timescales.

6. Organisation Tips – Plan & Schedule

It’s much easier to fit in everything you want to do if you schedule things into your diary or day in advance. It makes it easier to focus and manage your time.

It’s also worth having a joint calendar with partners/kids so that it’s easy to tag each other in social events/commitments/appointments etc and they’ll appear in each persons calendar.

7. Write To-Do Lists

I love a list. Love them! Spend time writing a list every morning, it’ll take just a couple of minutes. Focus on the tasks that need doing and jot them in a list, simple. You can make online to-do lists or get yourself a cute little To Do List Notebook!

And it means you’ll stay focused, keep on track and achieve what you want. Plus it’s super satisfying ticking things off… (just me…oh?)

8. Organisation Tips – Use Technology

Again something I love. I use iPhone, iPad and laptop to manage my work, my diaries, my home, my kids schedules, everything! They also mean I can multi-task easily as my work-life is completely mobile and shared across my devices.

9. Routine

I know it sounds a bit dull… ROUTINE. BUT… If you get yourself into a good routine, one that works for you then you’ll find that as you go on the days just get easier and everything falls into place better.

Work out what you really need to fit in during a regular week and build your routine around it. Incorporate things like sorting out a school day routine, work commitments, meal planning, housework and regular hobbies or after school clubs.

10. Catch Up Time

You can plan and schedule as much as you like and on the whole it works out fine but as a mum there’s always going to be times when you can’t get stuff done, unexpected things crop up or the kids are sick.

Building catch-up time into your regular routine gives you chance to get back on track after a hectic week, without necessarily falling behind or feeling like you can’t get things done.
